It’s really hard to spend money when you don’t have any money to spend right? The sad part is I probably didn’t need to spend all that money–but we did.  It was on food as we had most of the dinner stuff but we forgot to double check on everything and were missing key parts of the dinners we had planned.  We should have just changed the dinner plans but oh well. It wasn’t that much money spent.

I did go to the race on Saturday morning.  I forgot to clue in my fiance as to me not running and my cat would not stop hounding us for food.  You would think we had never fed him in his entire life the way he carries on.  Anyways, the race was actually fun so I’m glad I went.  It was raining and cold but I got a free race and a free tee shirt! I also improved my time.  I ran it in 30:20 so roughly 10.07 a mile.  So I am improving-and probably could have ran this one faster.  Turns out it’s hard to run when your glasses are foggy and rain spotted-not easy to see where you are going. They also didn’t have a map so that wasn’t too helpful.

We also sold some more dvds on Saturday-I bought some books off my list but I love the fact that I was able to do it with money from the sale.  We still have some left actually.  We are going to keep on top of the not buying just to buy something and make sure that it’s what we want before buying though process right now.  It seems to be helping keep our stuff toned down and helps out the budget.

That was my fun, relaxing weekend-how was yours? I love rainy weekends sometimes.

Insanity update

We had to redo the recovery week as my fiance (and work out partner) pulled a muscle in his shoulder.  OR sprained it, one of those two.  So we took it easy and reverted back to recovery week so that he wouldn’t hurt it more and we could keep exercising.  So nothing new to report here.

  1. Glad you decided to run and yay on the improved time. I would LOVE a rainy weekend here in LA. It’s been so fricken hot I can’t concentrate. I feel like a slug. Do a rain dance for us would ya? 🙂

    I love selling things to make money for purchases instead of adding to our “Misc” budget category. Nice work.

    It’s great to be able to buy something using funds from an other thing you sold. We do that often with children’s clothes ad it can really help defray some of the costs

      It is really nice! I feel better about it every time. There’s this new place that opened up around here that is similar to a consignment store. We’re going to go check it out so we can see if we can do more of this!

    I’m seriously impressed with anyone who can have that many no-spend days. Now that we’re able to throw some real money onto our debts, I am committed to being very careful with our money and excited to see more debt progress.

    • bogofdebt says:

      Part of it was having no money and the other part was being able to see the dvds/books in order to buy things without truly buying them. I don’t really try to have a no spend day and have found that helps in having them.

  5. Glad you ran and that you enjoyed it- foggy, rain spotted glasses and all.
    And can you believe I’m jealous of your low spending week. $28, only on food. I don’t think I’ve seen spending that low in over 9 years (since before we got married).

    • bogofdebt says:

      Like I said, having no money really helped! We do try to not have to buy too much food on in between grocery trips because we found that was where a lot of our impulse spending was.

  6. My dog begs the same way! You would think we never fed him! Glad you had a relaxing weekend!

      I think animals have a universal code. I can walk in the door 5 minutes past his feeding time and he’s whining so pitifuly. Until I check out his food bowl and notice he still has some food.
